“Beautifull nature trail not too difficult but take enough water”

Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We expected the walk more difficult as Some say, but even with Teva watersandels iT was à very Nice and fantastisch nature experience.
In my opinion best beach with bright cristal clear water was under the huge cave, le grotto Dell Uzzo, the cala del Uzzo.
Mind that in August iT was crowded and very popular!
Also intersting was the nature museum where you van watch the almost extinctie Hermanns turtle.
I think iT was called the centro visitatori with very friendly host.
The views where fantasic during walk, and with all the heat you need lost of water.
The trip is doable with Teva, Reve, or other good walking sandals which you van use at one of the small but beautifull beaches with lost of other beachlovers....
Ofcourse beter start early in summer beaches of the heat.
We saw people fainting by the heat on the hot stoney paths.
Parking cost you à 5euro, entrance of the park 5 euro, children till 14 free, from 14 to 18 3euro.
Get there intime because the parkings get full in August around 10h!

The others have said it. This is an amazing place; wild and wonderful.
We went early - shortly after it opened and we walked for a bit over an hour and then went down to the sea and swam in a cove. And we had it all to ourselves - absolutely no one else was around. Heaven.
We were at the cove for about an hour and then went back to the gate. Getting back took a bit longer because it was a lot hotter and because we had to keep passing increasing numbers of hot people going into the reserve much later.
I bet the coves were pretty crowded by midday.

This is a must visit. Yes a good trek down to the water but you will not find anywhere more beautiful. The water is crystal clear, warm and so so clean

Lovely beaches and beautiful views. Lovely walk along the coast some ups and downs but a fairly easy walk.
